obama, by the way, barack obama scored mid left in both polls. >> interesting. i mean maybe not for people today because he obviously is very popular certainly with democrats, but for historians to choose a living president. >> they chose him as number ten of the 20. they put him at the bottom of the list just below ronald reagan. but it is interesting. the popular people put him in the middle of achievements. it was one of the top ten in the country, so they excluded george w. bush. to my regret they excluded george herbert walker bush who i personally thing they deserved more credit than they got. the popular vote excluded woodrow wilson. woodrow wilson charted american history for the next years. >> what do you make of the breakdown if you look at the list that's used democratic. out of ten, only three are republicans. >> yeah. i mean the people, four were republicans, but wi biand large you have to look at who the republicans are. you've about got warren harding who was always drunk and making love in a closet. corrupt. you've got herbert hoover, decent made who made a s
obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> i think that's a strong ad for mitt romney. the question is why he wasn't playing that two or three months ago. >> it is a good ad and you're right. there's a larger dynamic in ohio that actually is true nationally, too, which is you have some economic improvement, you have -- there's a sort of consumer confidence number that came out, highest since february, the housing market that's starting to actually show real upticks nationally and the distressed markets, so it's going to be hard for mitt romney to go around selling the voice of gloom. that's something people don't want to hear. they're changing tactics. the compassion idea, something else, compassion and mitt romney , not a natural fit but they have to try something new. i think, i would be interested to see if they come out with a ha

my policies, president obama and i both care about the middle class and the poor. that is not what people on the ground believe and i think that's attributed to the president's ad campaigns on the ground. i think it also is underscored by the 47% comments. but the other thing that was interesting here is in ohio, the president is leading mitt romney among women by 25 points. so, early on in the campaign all the talk we had about women's issues, the focus on women at the rnc and the dnc, that has clearly been a lasting problem for mitt romney, as well. a number from this poll, they asked who would be better on women's reproductive health issues, in ohio, the president led there by 29 points. so this has actually impacted quite significantly the campaign. >> if we take ohio as a microcosm for the country and say things have gone from not so great to pretty bad for romney in this month, month of september, two things jump out at me here about what's going on. number one is what crystal is talking about. poll numbers of middle class, working class voters saying we think romney favors t

to the highest office in this country. president obama and mitt romney both spoke at the cgi today and former president clinton stole the show at the democratic national convention. he had some tough advice for the republican candidate. mitt romney today came out with this line which was -- went down very well with the audience as you would expect. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> what words would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates are very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children, and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is their median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit.
. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things bter for them. haneo are on n welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. >> when mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling thr we, hettd millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000, $45,000 a year. romney paid 14% on taxes in over $13 million in income. >>> ben, all along people say the road to pennsylvania avenue goes through oo a your campgn rortey sees this as game over. that is for mitt romney because of the new polling that's out today, putting president ahead by ten points. a lot of people, though, would say that those polls could be wrong and inflated. but what are you doing to make sure ohio stays as a strength let me be clear from the beginning. we're running like we're ten points behind. we don't have roseolored glasses on here. the reaction is there's a reaction across the state. it provided context behind the he w o hard-working people who have worked their entire

to both president obama and mitt romney's events here in ohio. the president is in bowling green. mitt romney is in bedford heights. we'll go live to both locations. to new york, it is the one time of the year when nearly every world leader in the same place, a lot of them at least, the united nations general assembly. kings, prime ministers, ministers get a few minutes at the podium to address the rest of the world. they get their undivided attention unless, of course, certain delegations decide to walk out in protest or not even show up. well, that's what happened today at the american mission to the u.n. essentially did not show up as the president of iran walked in. more than just a minute or so. here's a bit of a speech a few minutes ago by president mahmoud ahmadinejad. it was not a redefined message by any stretch of the imagination. he pretty much repeated what he has said along the lines of western world nomination as he rallied against the western world as well as the united states. let's listen in as he talks about the u.n. as well. >> the need to remove the structural value
they can't -- it's -- the margs inhese stasre s t they need both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of goo news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" abo the beltway as the new spos surpower. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "spos illustrated" i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >>ike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privile here. >> please. >> i want to hear about one story today and one story only. and i want to know what's going on in kansas. mika, do we have

's to be expected that both sides are going to do what they can. you have three polls facing the romney team that they're trying to discredit in multiple ways. i think there's got to be some truth. president obama is up pretty substantially in a number of polls. women voters critically important. i think it puts the gop in a tough spot because here you have a guy who's defending the concept of legitimate rain or forceable rape as part of the that puts the party on defense when it comes to women voter vo. >> karen, think back. when you saw the latest poll up by ten points, are you smiling from ear to ear or what? >> you know what? i'm going tell you something. when i was at the dnc then and now i would be very concerned simile because you can't take anything for granted. i'm concern thad the president be outside of the margin of error in terms of his lead because i don't underestimate karl rove to steal the election. the tay party vote challenging students in ohio simile because they didn't put their dorm room number on their registrations. those kids are being subpoenaed to go to court. thos
have reported, president obama and governor romney are both campaigning in ohio today. and with early voting an option in dozen of states this year many americans could cast their ballots before the presidential debates even begin. shannon bream is live in washington tonight. what's the thinking about who stands to gain from this early voting, shannon? >> well, shepard, the president dominated in early voting in 2000 2008. it wasn't even close. political experts like michael mcdonald who is a professor at george mason thinks it's going to be a whole lot closer this time around in 2012. >> republicans are more enthused than in 2008. so that's -- there will be motivation among republicans to vote. plus, we have a romney campaign that's investing in early voting much more so than the mccain campaign did in 2008. >> by the way, in the last presidential election, some 400,000 early mail-in ballots were thrown out. mostly for is he simple mistakes things like postage and forgetting to sign it mail-in ballots do tend to skew more toward g.o.p. voters. shep? >> shepard: first debate a week fr
and the battle for the buckeye state. president obama, mitt romney both campaigning there today. look at the poll from cbs and the "new york times." >> showing in ohio now the president has a 10-point lead over mitt romney among likely voters. 53% to 45%. that number's going to jump off the screen for a lot of people in this country. ohio, 18 electoral votes, seventh highest in the nation and again no republican has ever won the white house without winning that number. >> how many times have we said that? >> say it every time. >> jim acosta has that stitched into his t-shirts. hi, jim. traveling with mitt romney from ohio. >> reporter: that's how that. good morning. i think mitt romney has also heard that once or twice. thanks to john berman for bringing that up again. rolling up on a mitt romney event getting started in a few moments in westerville, ohio, outside of columbus. mitt romney goes then up to the northern part of the state, hit the cleveland area and toledo later on this evening. we tried to talk to mitt romney about the struggles he's having here in ohio before the poll came out this
of muscling on both sides. i think it affected his relationship with barack obama for the first few years of his presidency, but i think now that they've sorted things out between themselves and i think he said, look, he loves being center stage. the clinton global initiative is huge. it's attended by almost as many world leaders as the u.n. general assembly. you have a guy who really isn't president but for all intents and purposes is a very influential world leader. somebody said to me, who needs who more? does barack obama need bill clinton more or does bill clinton need barack obama more? i think they need each other. bill clinton, the inflew enser. i think for barack obama there's no more effective, articulate defender of his right to be re-elected right now than bill clinton. >> okay. >> so along the same lines is a new poll, quinnipiac, "new york times" poll that shows mr. obama is up by 10 points in the state of ohio over mitt romney. is that for the efforts of obama's great campaigning or does it have more to do with bill clinton and that widely admired speech he gave at the dnc?
